Pro Wrestling

Eastern Wrestling Alliance

Where -- Bowley's Quarters Fire Hall, 900 Bowley's Quarters Rd., Baltimore

When -- Tomorrow, 7 p.m.

What now? -- The main event features a special double ladder match, with two side-by-side rings, two ladders and two titles on the line in an eight-man match that includes local stars Derek Frazier and Stevie Riggs. The EWA's year-end awards will also be announced during the event. Admission is $10. For information, call 443-858-2755. It's a good thing the matches are being held in a fire hall ... just in case the action begins to heat up.

Pro Football

Chargers@Redskins

Where -- FedEx Field, Landover

When -- Sunday, 1 p.m.

What now? -- It's not every day that two coaches with more than 150 wins apiece match up in the NFL. But former Redskins coach Marty Schottenheimer brings San Diego to Washington to face Joe Gibbs. A pair of tickets on eBay sold for as little as $49 yesterday. Last weekend, the Chargers had six players score touchdowns in a 48-10 trouncing of the Buffalo Bills. If San Diego does that again, the Redskins can start thinking about watching the postseason from the same sports bar as the Ravens.

College Basketball

Nicholls State @Maryland

Where -- Comcast Center, College Park

When -- Sunday, 2 p.m.

What now? -- The Terps return from the Maui Invitational to take on the Colonels, who are 0-3, but have a chance to pick up their first win when they play at UMES today at 3 p.m. Tickets are still available and can be purchased at 301-314-7070 before 5 p.m. today or at the box office Sunday. Nicholls State has yet to allow fewer than 93 points in a game - so if you like to see Maryland light up the scoreboard, this is the perfect game for you.

Pro Hockey

Sabres@Capitals

Where -- MCI Center, Washington

When -- Sunday, 4 p.m.

What now? -- If you want to get really ambitious after the Redskins game, you could make it from FedEx Field to MCI Center before the end of the first period. And because tickets start at just $10, it might just be worth it. Besides, if a judge were to rule that the Russian team Moscow Dynamo owns the rights to Capitals star Alex Ovechkin, this could be your last chance to see the talented rookie until next year. Tickets can be purchased on the Web site.

College Basketball

UMBC@Loyola

Where -- Reitz Arena

When -- Sunday, 6 p.m.

What now? -- Maryland transfer Andre Collins led the Greyhounds in a season-opening win over Towson last weekend, and UMBC lost to the Tigers on Tuesday, so based on the Towson factor, Loyola would appear to have the upper hand this weekend. With a win, Loyola would be 2-0 for the first time in six years. The Greyhounds would also double their win total from two seasons ago. Tickets, which start at $5, can be purchased at 410-617-2547.
